Default Good watercooling

Ok I am thinking about getting watercooling so I can get the most out of my system. Well the problem is is that I only have about $200 to spend. I was looking at DangerDen's Maze4 Power kit which is about $180. Here's a link
http://www.dangerdenstore.com/produc...3&cat=2&page=1

Would that be a good setup? I was just add a gpu block and chipset block later. Or could you guys list some parts for a good watercooling setup. It dosent have to be a 3 block system. While im on the topic of water cooling and overclocking how would this memory handle overclocking?

that mem is ok it would be able to do 250FSB but im not sure how far after that

i would recommend a DD D5 pump
TDX cpu block
MAZE4 GPU block
dont get a chipset block
black ice xtreme2 dual 120mm radaiator i heard if you are going for 2 blocks you will need at least dual 120mm if you are going with just one block then one 120mm is fine
tubing obviously
clamps water coolant etc

Yeah thats nice but it's a quite a bit over $200 when I go to DangerDen's website. Am I going to get a worthwhile watercooling system for $200? or should I just forget watercooling and stick with air?

why are you going with water cooling? are your temps bad, try to get an aftermarket heatsink like zalman is it too loud, get a fan controller

Well it's loud, the temps aren't that bad but they could be lower, and I would like to start overclocking.

get a zalman heatsink they are very quiet and efficient.

also if your case fans are loud a fan controller is nice
